diy, memorials, blues/punk and the early bird special

I always like the DIY-style anarcho-punk alternative-culture shows. These are people who have a general disdain for American Apparel and designer jeans, venti mocha lattes and greedy middle men. If I didn't stick out like a sore thumb i'd try to go more often. When you're a janitor for The Eye Of Sauron you don't attend many anarchist book club meetings. I kind of imagine them like sunday school... Basically i'd attend in order to question everyone's view and everyone just thinks i'm trolling them.

The Firefly (219 NE 20th St, Miami, FL) - From the Depths, Mysterious Rabbit Puppet Army, Merkit
6:30pm, $5, all ages

I almost forgot Toxic Thursdays! The continuation of your Thursday punk night in Fort Lauderdale. Still very few shows in Broward so let's keep the momentum going.

Pulp Live - Jolly Badfellow, The Livvers, The Ugly Harts
10pm, $4, 18 and up

As you can read in this flyer, this show is in part a memorial to Giovanni of Dromdead, a Venezuelan hardcore group. A bunch of them were attacked on the streets and one died from his injuries. The kid was only 21. It's disturbing that a kid like that dies and Bernard Madoff lives. But the world ain't fair, yadda yadda, so come out and slam in the pit and celebrate life.

Churchill's Pub - Fortitude, Nobodys Hero, Unit Six, To Be Hated, Enough, M66, Pool Party
9pm, $5, ?

Poprox - Riot Agents, Mad Martigan, Boy Prostitute, Los Imigrantes, Live Suicide
maybe 9pm?, $5, probably 18+ or 21+

This isn't strictly punk but it's good muzak. Scott makes some great 1-man blues and Viva Le Vox is a sort of "southern punk"... I hesitate to label it any further. Kinda far, but I don't think Scott is coming down to Churchill's again this year :(

Rack'em Billiards - Scott H. Biram, Viva Le Vox
9:30pm, ?, ?

For all you kids with nothing to do on a Sunday afternoon there's a nice wholesome free all-ages show at 2pm in Ftl. They've got some decent records too, if you're into that kinda thing. If you get sushi in this plaza make sure it's from the small japanese market and not the crappy giant sushi house next door.

Sunday, October 25
Radio-Active Records - To Be Hated, Break On Through, The Actuaries
2pm, free, all ages
